Yum for the bath

Taking a bath is one of my all-time favourite things to do. I don't have them as often as I should - before anyone makes a smart ass remark I should clarify, I do shower on a daily basis, I just don't make the time to soak in a relaxing bath as often as I would like to - the perfect bath includes candles, a cup of hot chocolate (or glass of wine), a book and some fabulous bubble bath or a bath bomb fizzing around me.

My girlfriend Cara sent me some of her fav bath melts, bombs and bar soap from LUSH this past Christmas. One word: WOW. I've used some LUSH products in the past (again, thanks to Cara) but never really understood her obsession with the company until I tried their bath products. Unbelievable!

What I didn't realize was that I could (and should) have chopped the melt & bomb in half or even thirds to make them last a few baths each. Instead I dropped the whole damn thing in and cried when my bath time came to an end because the bomb was gone. A simple solution would be to go to LUSH and purchase more, unfortunately the closest LUSH is in Toronto so my next brush with LUSH will have to wait until I head to T-dot for a shopping weekend this spring/summer.

I'm still mourning the loss of my LUSH so to soothe myself I figured I could check out Etsy and see if there are any fabulous looking bombs on there. Sure enough I found a pile of products that look good enough to eat and the shipping is less than LUSH charges. I wonder if they're as good though, maybe I'll just have to order some and find out for myself.

Butter Cream Icing and White Chocolate Cherry mini cupcake bath bombs from Feeling Smitten.

Strawberry Lemonade bath bomb by Magic Hands Workshop

Sex Appeal Sea Salt Soak with Roses by Savor who has a pile of yummy looking products I would love to try.

Another one of Savor's products I would love to get my paws on is this Caramel Brownie Batter soap. Looks good enough to eat!

And finally check out this super cute, super cool sushi soap by Midohana that comes in an adorable bunny Bento box! Love it!

I've heard those lush products are amazing. I have had some bath bombs sitting next to my tub for at least a year and a half. The kids use my bath, and I rarely use it now. Wah!

Yep, I love lush! The products smell so good and leave your bod all soft and silky.

I'm not surprised you don't find time for relaxing baths Stacy, you are so busy with photography, sewing, kids and work! :)

Hey Kid,


There are a few if you search for lush bath but restrict it to items in Canada or there are far too many

Jaime said...

Oh boy, thanks John! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for good lush products on Ebay now! :)
